Boots You Need Not Say No To

It’s Friday and I am all about taking a moment from all of the “no thanks” to give a “yes please” to these boots. While fall has been sittin’ pretty for abut six weeks, consistent boot wearing weather has made a much more recent debut. I’ve pulled out my favorite boots and I’ve pulled out my favorite new camel riding style colored ones courtesy of bandolino. There are the low cut black motorcycle ones and the suede olive green ones htat tie up in the back. There are the slate grey pointed toe ones and the rounded black toe knew high boots. And then…there are all of these that I came across and ther may be a pair or two that may come across my closet. Until Monday! xxoo

Style- Back to the Button Up

We’re taking style back to the basics today with what I absolutely consider a wardrobe staple- the button up. Now some of you may say it’s the “white” button up and others will say it’s the “chambray” – I say, it’s the style and cut, and go ahead and try either, or like me, both. The button up shirt is a closet classic and offers a great deal of versatility, whether paired with a pencil skirt, tulle skirt, boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, classic black pants, or pants that offer a pop of color. Not to mention you can play with collar design, sleeve length, tucking it in, or letting it all hangout. If you’re like me,and stateside, at some point this Labor Day weekend you are going to shop. Why not got to that new boutique but go back to the basics and snag yourself a button up? I’m headed back to DC to get back together with some amazing friends to get back to my fun self. Until Monday! xxoo

#IndieSpirit Style Spotlight

I love my style. I like what I like, know the importance of a well make and fitted garment, pattern play and color doesn’t scare me in the least bit,  and I never, never, NEVER underestimate the power of accessories. I also thoroughly appreciate anyone who curates a style of their own. A few of my style icons are women who know how to do sexy without taking everything off, amp up menswear with their own curves, curls, and pops of color, set trends as oppose to follow them, and adorn their bodies in clothes that are unapologetically reflective of them. I am pretty sure if the #IndieSpirit had the mother of all walk in closets that she’d choose pieces that would reflect the style of some of my favorite style icons Tracee Ellis Ross, Solange, Helen Lisichanh, Zoe Saldana and Kourtney Kardashian.
